Worst of Both Worlds

What if you were to combine the worst elements of traditional Catholic hymns (and the worst element I can think of is, “It’s in a language the singers often don’t understand”) with the worst elements of hippie Catholic folk-pop (which I don’t think need listing)?

Ahem.

I suppose I should be pleased the song’s in Latin, since that’s the official language of the Roman Rite, but honestly, it really doesn’t gain anything in translation. A sarcastic commenter responded, “Very generous of you! Now we who love the Extraordinary Form can sing it at Mass too!  Thank you so much! 🙂” Because that’s what the Extraordinary Form needed.
